    Hi Does anyone know what what would be the best way to have mobile internet in France or Spain. In the UK I use a 3G MiFI this lets me connect up to 5 devices but when we go to France I would not be able to use that because the Data Cost would be too high.

    This is my first post.

    Many Thanks

    Stu

    Hi and welcome.

    Try a search, this has been discussed many times.

    France i think is harder than Spain as there is no easy way to buy a local sim. Most rely on free wifi and buy devices that allow them to pick up signals better and from further afield.
